Robert Kirkman's Invincible is coming to Amazon.
The studio has handed out a straight-to-series order for an hourlong animated take on the recently concluded comic book series of the same name. Like the comic, the eight-episode "adult animated" Amazon series, from Kirkman and Cory Walker, revolves around Mark Grayson, a normal teenager except for the fact that his father is the most powerful superhero on the planet. Shortly after his 17th birthday, Mark begins to develop powers of his own and enters into his father’s tutelage. The series is suspenseful, action-filled and emotion-packed, yet builds upon poignant and heartwarming moments of love, friendship and humanity.
Kirkman's Skybound will produce, while Simon Racioppa will serve as showrunner.
Kirkman, Racioppa, David Alpert and Catherine Winder will executive produce.
Launched in 2003, Invincible wrapped its run this February after 144 issues. Kirkman and Walker created the title, with Ryan Ottley boarding with the eighth issue as its central artist.
Invincible is Kirkman's first series under his overall deal with Amazon Studios.
Last April, word also broke that an Invincible movie was in the works at Universal with Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg working alongside Kirkman. This project is still alive according to sources.
